Welcome to Belmont online!
Belmont Synagogue is an orthodox community of six hundred families in north-west London founded in the mid-1960s. We have a wide range of communal activities including daily services, educational programmes and special activities for all age groups.
The community is led by Rabbi Marc Levene and his wife Lisa, as well as Chair, Barbara Mazliah, and a Board of Management.
No longer one of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogue, we are surrounded by excellent Jewish primary and secondary schools.
Belmont is also surrounded by an eruv, which connects to other local eruvim and makes it easier to celebrate Shabbat with friends and family.
You will find more about Belmont on this website but the best way to get to know us it to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.
Food shopping and deliveries
Local shops and caterers offering deliveries or click-and-collect services are listed on the food shopping & takeaways page. There is also a list of other kosher shops throughout north west London which can be downloaded and a list of restaurants open for takeaways.
DAVENING IN SHUL
No pre-registration will be necessary. The Shul is set up as before in accordance with US guidelines, with two metres between seats. All attendees are required to wear a face mask, sanitise their hands and enter and leave the premises without congregating. It is vital that everyone follows these procedures which are essential to keep our community safe.
Guidance from the United Synagogue states that those aged over 70 are welcome to attend services provided that 22 days have elapsed since their first covid-19 vaccination. Those who are clinically vulnerable and/or aged over 50 should continue to take account of the enhanced risk to themselves pre-vaccination and for 22 days post vaccination. Those who are extremely vulnerable should not attend services at this time.
Please remember to take a lateral flow test before the fast comes in. You should be able to pick these up at no charge from your local pharmacy. If you test positive, please arrange a full PCR test and do not come to shul.
Please disperse quickly from the shul grounds at the end of your service, especially if there is another service coming in.
We look forward to seeing you in our beautifully redecorated Shul very soon.
